Its an ancient bridge , strictly pedonale these days bustling with tourists vying for the best spot to get that magic view. The river rushes under it , its a perfect place to appreciate the scene nearby , the Roman ruins , the church on the hill , the many churches surrounding the bridge . Its one of the worlds... More

Lots of great picture taking opportunities. The ancient bridge, fortunately without traffic, the roaring river, the castle on the hill, the colourful buildings along the river banks. Hard to take a bad picture and lots of background for a "Selfie"!

I decided to include Verona in my itinerary & make it my base , instead of Venice, after reading reviews of the place & it was an excellent decision! Verona is very charming and the part of town around the ponte pietra, teatro Romano is dreamy and beautiful. Of course ,the ponte pietra on the river Adige is a bridge... More

Just the walk from one side to the other is wonderful, the sound of the river flowing underneath the bridge adds to the experience.

This bridge goes right from the city historic center over the Adige to the other part of the city (that you definitely should pay a visit). The view, as always, is beautiful.

Well the bridge is old, and I am prepared to believe that some of it was build in classical Roman times but it doesn't have much going for it. I have seen much more impressive Roman bridges with much more original material. On the plus side you do not have to go far out of your way to see it.

a pedestrian only bridge which takes you into a quieter area of the city. From this entrance you are close to two churches - the Duomo and St Anastasia. Some lovely old buildings with frescoes under the eaves. To get away for some peace and quiet this is the place to come and mooch around.

What a bridge, linking Old Town Verona to Teatro Romano, you couldn't really ask for a more striking bridge in the city. The original bridge built dated as far back as 100BC, though this was rebuilt in the 1200s. It is an accolade to how advanced the buidling was 800 years ago, as with the rest of the city, heroing...

We went over the bridge twice and photographed it from several places. This is one of many old and interesting bridges.

This bridge is at the opposite end of the old town to the Arena, but well worth a walk. You can take in the old town whilst en route to the Bridge and enjoy a walk over the bridge to see a view of the old town whilst on the other side of the river. Some great little restaurants close... More
